My favorite sports event/memory/moment is ... running head to head with Drew Dreschel at the Ultimate Backyard Warrior Ninja Competition. Within my first year of Ninja Training and competing I was able to clear Stage 1 course of the competition and stand on top of the 14’ warped wall with one of the strongest and most celebrated ninjas in the world.
Coach Antioquia thrives on seeing people succeed and is a full blown life enthusiast which is why he was initially drawn to becoming a school teacher and to American Ninja Warrior. Mark ran the course as tester for the TV show in both Cleveland and Las Vegas for Season 9. He was a National Ninja League World Finalist in 2018 and trains consistently in powerlifting, calisthenics, and Ninja Warrior.
